About Certified for Sport®
To meet the growing demands of athletes, coaches and all those concerned about banned substances in sports supplements, cosmetics and personal care, NSF created the Certified for Sport® program. The program certifies that what is on the label is in the package and that the product does not contain unsafe levels of contaminants, prohibited substances or masking agents.
Certification also means that supplement, functional food, and cosmetics/personal care manufacturers and their suppliers meet stringent certification guidelines developed through a consensus process involving regulatory, sports industry and consumer groups.
About NSF: A Public Health and Safety Organization
NSF is an independent and accredited non-governmental organization whose mission is to protect and improve global human health. We do this by leading the development of public health and safety standards and by testing and certifying products and systems to those standards.
Certified products and systems earn the NSF mark, which is respected by consumers, manufacturers, retailers and regulatory agencies. Deeply rooted in science, we are widely recognized as the “gold standard” for quality in areas such as water systems, food safety and health sciences including dietary supplements, functional foods and cosmetics/personal care.
